In addition, the Student Life Office and Public Safety will answer all questions raised by students and parents whenever possible.
"Timely Warning" safety flyers are prepared and distributed campus-wide in circumstances or incidents where violence is involved, could bring harm to others and/or constitutes an immediate and/or ongoing or continuing threat. Warnings are issued through the university e-mail system and posting on all doors allowing access to the residence halls and front doors of alternative housing locations. The determination to distribute safety flyers is made by Student Life and Public Safety Administrators, after gathering and accessing the known facts of an incident. Parents may also obtain this information by requesting it from the Student Life Offices, Public Safety or the University's website.
